Black Sunbird on alert

Beauty in a Port Elizabeth Garden, May 2020

This black sunbird was photographed recently by a good friend in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. The bird has been drinking at the bird feeder.

According to Professor Google these beautiful birds can be found mainly in Africa, south of the equator.

The fancy name for the black sunbird is the Amethyst Sunbird.

Have a look at this site to read more about these wonderful little birds. On the site there is also a map showing where the birds can be seen.

A really great picture!
